In alliance with the U.S. Commercial Service, U.S. Department of Commerce, IMA-NA members can participate in the New Market Export Initiative (NEI) which is a unique public-private partnership designed to help companies increase their export markets. All IMA-NA members are eligible.
The NEI is focused on:

3. removing barriers to the sale of U.S. goods and services abroad,
4. robustly enforcing trade rules, and
5. pursuing policies at the global level to promote strong, sustainable, and balanced growth.
The U.S. Commercial Service provides U.S. companies unparalleled access to business opportunities around the world. As a U.S. Government agency, they have relationships with foreign government and business leaders in every key global market. Their trade professionals provide expertise across most major industry sectors, and every year, they help thousands of U.S. companies export goods and services worth billions of dollars.
